About Troels Aagaard
In Troels Aagaard’s visual universe, the range between systematics and dynamics, reality and illusion, is investigated. Aagaard makes use of the basic principles of geometry, while he at the same time exploits to the utmost the most fundamental elements of painting: line, plane, form, and colour. Through surprising artifices the three-dimensionality of the surface is explored in such a way that his paintings often seem to be sculptural objects.
Troels Aagaard is represented in the museum collection by the work On the Shoulders of Giants, created especially for the Counterpointexhibition in 2009, as a comment for Richard Mortensen’s large painting Complex of shapes in front of white ground (1969). Aagaard also figured as part of the 2017 exhibition IDEALS – concrete art then and now, in which he contributed to the creation of a connection between the concrete art of the 1950s and our present time.
